The Institute for Climate and Society (iCS) is a philanthropic organization that promotes prosperity, justice and low carbon development in Brazil. The Institute operates as a bridge between international and national funders and local partners. Consequently, iCS is part of a wide network of philanthropic organizations that are dedicated to finding solutions to the climate crisis.
iCS outlines plans of action to overcome climate problems from a social perspective. Therefore, it prioritizes measures that, in addition to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, also result in improvements in the quality of life for society, especially for those most vulnerable.
As an independent Brazilian organization, iCS belongs to an international network of organizations that catalyse world-leading climate policy at international, national and city levels to reduce the emissions of greenhouse gases.
Together with Agora Energiewende, iCS has established E+ Diálogos Energéticos Institute as an independent energy transition think tank that can convene Brazil's diverse stakeholders to discuss the challenges and opportunities of the energy transition for the country.
